Physician Recognition Project
We strive to recognize the unique talents and contributions of our faculty in clinical care, research, education, and service, with the goal of sharing that information with as many students, residents, fellows, faculty, staff, patients, visitors, prospective students and faculty and community members as possible.

- Cardiovascular Medicine
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
- Gastroenterology and Hepatology
- General Internal Medicine Research
- Infectious Disease
- Primary Care Internal Medicine
- Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine
